Extra Large Silver Diamond African Hamper

  • This distinctive, handmade basket was woven by a senior Wolof craftswoman in Senegal using thin strips of plastic and natural grasses. 

    The basket was specially selected for its beauty and quality on a recent trip to Dakar. It features a white, aqua, and yellow geometric design and includes braided handles and a fitted lid.

    Measures 19”D x 27”T (to lip), 34”T (to top). Please check the measurements of your space before ordering as this basket is very large. Questions about shipping? Visit our Shipping FAQ.

  • Since 2008, Swahili has worked with a group of talented Wolof weavers in remote Senegal to provide hampers and baskets woven from salvaged plastic strips and cattail stalks to stores around the world, including West Elm, Land of Nod, The Company Store, Garnet Hill and Anthropologie. Working together with the Peace Corps, Swahili and over 120 Wolof women prove that cooperative, home-based craft export is an proven way for rural women to earn the fair trade incomes that build healthy communities.
